This was our first visit in many years and we couldn't have been more pleased. Our server, April, was very helpful in answering our many questions - food related and otherwise! The sandwiches we ordered were excellent, presented beautifully and were well-priced. The restaurant, itself,...More

Went for brunch, and there were stations set up throughout the restaurant with plenty to choose from. Unlimited bloody's and mamosas - what!!! Left with the old pants much tighter. View was also outstanding

Let me preface this review with saying this place has a spectacular view---amazing. They force you to use valet which I did not like. We held a business dinner here with 15 Associates, 23 ended up coming. They ran out of entrees, soup and desserts....More

We met friends for dinner and wanted to be outside since the weather was nice. It took a bit long to get our drinks and my dirty martini was probably the worst one I've had. I told the waiter that it tasted funny and he...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
As per Trip Advisor and Yelp, I have never seen reviews so bad on a restaurant, and to still be in business. To Templeton Landing management..........Has your corporation headquarters seen these reviews? Has anyone come to Buffalo to address these issues? This is probably one of only a few restaurants on Buffalo's waterfront, and I must say a beautiful area and a beautiful building. What a loss. If you could only figure out how to solve your service and food issues. You have tens of thousands of potential customers in a short radius, yet, you are so under utilized. We have a pending family reunion, unfortunately, your reviews have driven us to another venue.

It really is tragic...the view and the ambiance is so incredible but the service is universally condemned. They stay in business because it is such a wonderful spot. If I wanted to be on the water I go down to Acqua's.

I am writing an article about African American restauranteurs in WNY. Is the owner of Templeton Landing African American?
